Endeavour is launching three new Chinese Medicine courses early next year. The final intake for our existing Bachelor of Health Science (Acupuncture) is 4 October 2021.

Acupuncture stimulates specific points on the body in order to regulate the flow of Qi (vital energy) to balance the functions of the body, mind and spirit and restore health. The ancient practice of Acupuncture, a form of Traditional Chinese Medicine, has become a widely used treatment option in Australia.

As a student you will gain an understanding of Traditional Chinese Medicine philosophy and principles and learn to apply these practically through techniques such as acupuncture, Qi Gong, Chinese herbs, Chinese dietary therapy and massage (Tui Na). Throughout this degree, you will have extensive opportunity for clinical practice in Endeavour's on campus Wellness Clinics.

Endeavour's Bachelor of Health Science (Acupuncture) is approved by the Chinese Medicine Board of Australia (CMBA). Graduates must apply for registration with CMBA if they wish to use professional titles and practise as a Chinese medicine practitioner in Australia. Information regarding registration standards is available on the CMBA website.

Education, product development and media positions are other popular career outcomes for Acupuncture graduates, in addition to clinical practice.
